Thurston: Judge’s Ruling Misses the Mark
TALLAHASSEE, FLA – House Democratic Leader Perry Thurston (D-Fort Lauderdale) expressed disappointment in Leon County Circuit Judge Terry Lewis’ ruling today accepting the redistricting map passed by the legislature last week.
“I am sure this fight is far from over. Today’s ruling misses the mark when it comes to guaranteeing that every vote will be cast in a constitutional drawn congressional district,” Thurston said. “I believe the requirements of the Fair Districts amendments have been ignored, and this ruling won’t help to resolve that.
